[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The Monitor Component

Simple single detector/monitor.

Identification

  • Author: Kim Lefmann
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: October 4, 1997
  • Version: $Revision$

Description

Sums neutrons (0th, 1st, and 2nd moment of p) flying through
the rectangular monitor opening. May also be used as detector.

Example: Monitor(xmin=-0.1, xmax=0.1, ymin=-0.1, ymax=0.1)

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
xmin m Lower x bound of opening -0.05
xmax m Upper x bound of opening 0.05
ymin m Lower y bound of opening -0.05
ymax m Upper y bound of opening 0.05
xwidth m Width of detector. Overrides xmin,xmax. 0
yheight m Height of detector. Overrides ymin,ymax. 0
restore_neutron 1 If set, the monitor does not influence the neutron state 0

Output parameters

Name Unit Description Default
Nsum - Number of neutron hits  
psum - Sum of neutron weights  
p2sum - 2nd moment of neutron weights
